Clunky prose, awkward transitions, predictable plot. This book could have used an editor and a ghostwriter. Even the cover looks amateurish. I don't know how much the other two reviewers were paid to plaster such insipid untruths publicly, but I have a feeling they invested more time into their overwrought, glowing reviews than the author did in writing her entire novel.

This is an excellent suspense novel by Chandra Adams. The plot is outstanding, the characters riveting, I couldn't put this book down! I felt although one of the major characters, Basilah had the most depth in her tale, it is Meena who I felt shined the best in Shades. It would be a mistake to assume this story is sorely on the plot that brings Basilah, Meena and a third character Kenya together in the present day and via flashbacks.

The plot is outstanding, the characters riveting, I couldn't put this book down! I felt although one of the major characters, Basilah had the most depth in her tale, it is Meena who I felt shined the best in Shades. It would be a mistake to assume this story is sorely on the plot that brings Basilah, Meena and a third character Kenya together in the present day and via flashbacks. What Ms. Adams has done in her debut novel is show the major differences between all three characters including Meena and her evolution of self throughout the book whereas Basilah's story displays the pain of finding 'Mr. Right' and the decisions she made with consequences. I enjoyed Shades of Retribution by Ms. Adams and I definitely wish her all the success in her later works.
